I'm a sucker for a freebie and that's how the following book ended up in my lap. It is the third in the series. I don't think there is much point now of reading book 1 and two as the writer has given a few reminders about the previous books. Not enough for me to know exactly who every one is but enough to take the surprise out of the first. I gave it 4 stars and would urge anyone who likes high octane thrillers with a black ops plot to start at book one.
Ridge Walker finds himself in unfamiliar territory (Japan),
when his friend Thad is accused of a murder he didn’t commit. He is out of his
depth after making some questionable decisions and underestimating a ruthless
killer. Luckily Thad has a powerful dad, but not even he can anticipate what
waits for him in Japan. This was a high octane thriller with some nail biting
scenes. I Liked the scenes set in Scotland, it is clear that the writer has a
fondness of the Scottish Isles. The problem I had with the book was that I came
into the series at book 3. I had not grown into the characters and some seemed
to be a bit too unlikely, especially the diamond dogs. Alex Breck does fill us
in about the characters pasts but a lot has happened in the previous books and
I would recommend starting at book one.
